Shabbat Hagadol – March 24
On the Shabbat preceding the Exodus, the Jews tied lambs to their beds in preparation for the Passover sacrifice. When the Egyptians asked about this, they were told that G‑d would bring about the final plague of the firstborn. The Egyptian firstborn panicked and, fearing for their lives, asked Pharaoh to finally let the Jews go. When Pharaoh refused, a civil war broke out between Pharaoh and the firstborns, causing many Egyptians to die even before the final plague struck. On the Shabbat preceding Passover, we celebrate this miracle.
It is a widespread custom among Jews to read the bulk of the Haggadah on the afternoon of Shabbat HaGadol. We start from Avadim Hayinu, right after Ma Nishtana, and read until Lechaper Al Kol Avonoteinu, at the end of Dayeinu and Al Achat Kamah VeChamah.
Important dates on the Chassidic Calendar
Yud Alef (11th of) Nissan - The Rebbe's Birthday
 Tuesday, March 27, 2018 (11 Nissan on the Hebrew calendar), marks 116 years since the birth of the Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, of righteous memory. For a brief biography and a selection of the Rebbe's teachings and guidance, please visit  therebbe.org
Throughout his lifetime, the Rebbe marked his birthday by redoubling his efforts to reach out to Jews in every corner of the world. As Passover approaches, let’s heed the Rebbe’s call to gather the entire Jewish nation at the Seder table.  
May this day bring blessings to us all, and may we be reunited with the Rebbe very soon with the coming of our righteous Moshiach. 

Nissan Custom - Reciting the Nasi
One year after the Exodus, during the first 12 days of Nissan, the Mishkan, the portable tabernacle in the desert, was dedicated. Each day, the Nasi or prince of a different tribe brought a special offering as a way of inaugurating the Mishkan for use. During these twelve days, we read the passages in the Torah describing each Nasi's gift. (This section can be found in the Torah, Number 7:1 - 8:4.) Interestingly, these readings make up the Chanukah Torah reading, the time when the Temple was re-dedicated in the days of the Macabees. During Nissan, we also add a special prayer to be said after reading the portion each day. A final portion is read on the 13th of Nissan. All of this is printed in the back of the Chabad Siddur, as well as in other Siddurim. It can be said online  here.
